Spokane Weekend Wine Time June 18-20
Hey, you, sitting there in the bathrobe. Put down the bacon and the powdered donut and get busy! Busy with what you say? There is a lot of wine to taste and you only have a few days to do it. You work hard all week, you need to treat yourself to some liquid art! I suggest a cure for the cubicle, corporate and blue collar blues is a nice glass of purple pleasure! You can thank me later.
